Default Re: TXE2 Exchanges

This photo was the Corton exchange, half way between Yarmouth and Lowestoft. Lovely little site among the trees. Had some happy days there. The chap in the photo was Jamie, if my memory serves me right, a Plessey wireman.
The young Telecom lad apprentice there was sent with a requisition order to the local Telecom stores for a Metric clock. He picked it up and it was fitted up on the rest room wall. It was an exact replica of the official clock but had hours numbered from 1 to 20 !! Someone had obviously taken a lot of time to sign write the new numbers on the dial. Certainly got a lot of people going when they were told we were going over to continental metric hour days . I reckon that clock did the rounds of numerous exchanges.
